Yeovil Town Under-18s began their Gary Else Memorial Cup campaign with a 2-2 draw against BRS Coaching Youth Under-18s at Alvington this weekend.

Having gone ahead with a long range effort from Mason Hunter just before half-time, the young Glovers were indebted to goalkeeper Robert Hollard who pulled off a fine stop to keep them in front at the interval.

But three minutes after the restart the Ringwood-based visitors drew level and added a second soon after 73 minutes only for captain Jake Graziano to complete the scoring from the penalty spot a minute later.

The game against Ringwood-based, who are much improved from the side Yeovil beat 6-0 in league action last month, was the first in the competition’s group stages. The other teams in the Glovers’ group are Torquay United and Bridgwater United.

Yeovil Town Under-18s: Robert Hollard, Ethan O’Sullivan, Josh Sutton, Jacob Shore, Harrison Foster, Jake Graziano, Mason Alden, Charlie Bateson, Mason Hunter, Alex Stevens. Max Dyer. Substitutes: Mikey Archibald, Harry Evans, Ryan Price, Josh Haskett, Nathan Hart.


A number of the club’s youth group teams playing under the Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust were also in action in the Junior Premier League.

The Under-14s ran out winners in their fixture against Taunton Town, whilst the Under-13s drew and the Under-15s lost against competition from the county town.

The Trust’s Under-11s lost their fixture against FC Wiltshire while the Under-12s match against Cheltenham Town was postponed. The Under-16s were without a match this weekend.
